Oh, dear friend! you left me alone,
Where have you gone?
My eyes cannot see your face,
Which was always a solace;
How beautiful was our friendship indeed!
Two bodies looked we, but were one;
To separate us in this world was none.
But who knew what fate had in store;
Our dreams vanished and were no more.
Whenever your picture comes to mind,
Eyes turn watery and I become blind;
My sorrow intense and wounds deep;
I can do nothing but weep and weep.
